In addition to Xander, confirmed acts for Rock Harvest II include RON KEEL, LEATHERWOLF, MITCH MALLOY, DC4, RUSS DWARF (KILLER DWARFS) and FARCRY, among others, with more acts being announced soon.
"We're stoked to have Xander Demos on the lineup for this great cause," said Michael Stover, Xander Demos' manager and owner, MTS Management Group. "Xander is one of today's premiere shredders, heavily influenced by some of the guys on this bill, so it makes total sense to have him sharing the stage with so many incredible artists. The fact that he is always up for helping a good cause made this a no-brainer."
